Since they are renewable materials, cork for instance, has a softer surface that can provide you isolation to wet circumstances but also offer comfort in the flooring field.

2017 is almost here, and the more we attentive we are, the more concern we are, and health is not the exception. Even though we all constantly bombed by new techniques of slimming down our bodies, look and become leaner, the secret is based on a series of steps daily repeated. When it comes about getting fit, all the process of getting the look you are craving for begins in the kitchen, subsequently in your habits and finally in your exercise routine, but that’s is a cool idea we would love to talk to you about in another occasion.

Kitchens are the hearts of any house, and with all improvements regarding eco-friendly products bamboo materials are now a trendy eco-friendly product. Since bamboo trees are a renewable source, it is possible to grow them to fully maturity in a short period, ranged from three to five years. Bamboo items are strong and long-lasting, however they also have the characteristic of being highly resistant to water damage, moisture and stains.

2016 has been a year where sustainability has become an important part of   Home industry, not only in the flooring field but also in the kitchen facilities. Made from renewable sources, bamboo kitchen items are beautifully rearranged, in a wide variety of sizes and ergonomic designs.

Bamboo Kitchen Items to start on 2017

Among the kitchen tools you can now find available in the market are: forks, bread knifes, cutting boards are made from smooth bamboo and cork; salads bowls made from discarded polished bamboo or even coconut shells. Fruit baskets are also another beautiful modern green kitchen item. Bamboo kitchen sets are now certified organic, which is a uniqueness touch on an eco-friendly home to consider on 2017.

Bamboo cutting boards cutting boards are the new alternative to plastic, glass, or maple cutting boards. Besides being versatile long-lasting products, bamboo cutting boards are popular because they do not dull expensive knives as quickly as hardwood cutting boards would.

Bacteria resilience. Cutting boards made of this natural source are healthier to be used than those made of wood. Plastic boards are easily damaged by cutting, not to mention they are highly contaminant. Bamboo cutting boards avoid microbes growing and fight backs water absorption and does not absorb odors or stains from previous foods. Therefore, simple washing, combined with monthly oil treatments you can preserve the beauty of the bamboo for many years.

Why should I avoid plastic in the Kitchen: which are the worst kind?

Bamboo kitchen sets, focuses on sustainability and also on decreasing plastic massive consumption. By avoiding plastic utensils and accessories when cooking, you would reduce Bisphenol A (BPA) discharges, which can melt or flake when exposed to heat, potentially causing chemicals to migrate into food.

Keep into account that even though you do not have plastic dispensaries, do not mean that you might not join a beverage every now and then. In those cases try to be aware and avoid plastic whenever possible. We recommend you to check level numbers and choose BPA-Free or PVC-free plastic #2, #4, #5 which are the less aggressive.

Plastic recipients which contain numbers like #1, #3, 6# and #7 are the highest contaminant and toxic when temperature increase or are directly exposed to sunlight. Number #1 is the one that hold Polyethylene (PET) or (PETE) and is commonly set up in disposable food and beverage containers, soft drinks, water bottles and even salad dressing. In any of the cases is a reasonably safe plastic option. FinishBuild strongly suggest you to do not drink from plastic water bottles that have this number on it.

#3 is responsible of Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), which is easily found in common soft plastic toys, squeeze bottles and, believe or not, shower curtains. Remember that temperature variations is what makes of this items highly pollutant. Subsequently, PVC is another component you should avoid, most of all inside your kitchen due to the fact is considered the most dangerous plastic.

#6: Polystyrene (PS) and #7 corresponds to another series of chemical components such as Polycarbonate, applied on clear plastic baby bottles, sippy cups and water bottles;  5 gallon water containers. In addition Tritan, is a new plastic that has not undergone enough safety testing and can be found in styrofoam containers, take-out food containers, disposable cups, bowls and utensils.

Regarding other more eco-friendly alternatives you can also try with: glass for food storing, high quality 304 grade stainless steel, cast iron or even ceramic cookware. FinishBuild encourages you to use stable materials such as: wood, bamboo, silicone or stainless steel.

2016 has been a year where consciousness sense has took an important role in many aspects of daily routines. Whether is for keeping track of a more healthy life, applying new techniques on dealing with stressful situations, improving home areas, or change toward happier fulfilled days, FinishBuild is always trying to supply you with fresh methods in order to reload your life in ways not everyone does. And because you are unique:

You ask it. We deliver it!

The most wonderful time of the year is already here! Christmas has been considered by many people around the world a truly magical holiday. I do not why but during this festive season people are jollier and kinder than usual, well I guess this is due to the Christmas spirit which is spread anywhere these days. I believe that the Christmas spirit should be preserved in each of us, no matter how difficult or challenging our situations are, when we focus on the inspiration that this amazing season of the year offers, harmony instantly makes from every household a beautiful place.

Christmas is fantastic holiday where everybody gathers in order to start a growing conversation about what Christmas means to them, they also strive to share it all with family and friends, this way comfort and inner calm show up allowing people to diminish their period of stress; I think that random acts of kindness are great chances to get you and your family in a more Christmas-y demeanor. On the other hand, I have to highlight that besides being one of the most awesome holidays of the year, Christmas is also the most wasteful one; the huge environmental impact this festive season causes can be reflected by the production of many of our favorite holiday treats, ornaments, staples and decorating items; having said this, what if we all could make our own eco- friendly Christmas decorations? This post is about giving you some inspiring ideas on how to make your own Christmas wreaths; I would like to share with you other possibilities of having beautiful unique (and why not bold) ornaments and decorating items that not only provide your home with eye- catching look but also are small changes with big and positive impact on our planet.

Christmas Wreaths: Natural DIY Project

You probably have got your Christmas tree covered with stunning ornaments, but now you are facing the challenge of completing your decoration for this beautiful season of the year, and of course wreaths are very traditional elements in any Christmas decor, so you should not miss the opportunity to create your own ones. Wreaths were first originated in ancient Rome; they were thought to be a sign of victory and status, so when it comes to create them my recommendation is to opt for colors and textures that suitably work for your home’s needs. What I really like about natural wreaths is that you can aim to include eucalyptus, fir or holly in order to have a truly fragrant environment at home. The first step you need to make is gathering a few Christmas wreath supplies that you probably have storage at home:

  • Wreath ring; you can find it in its basic flat version in a Christmas tree farm.
  • Pine, Cedar, or holly clippings.
  • Garden pruners.
  • Floral wire.
  • Wire snippets.
  • Your favorite decorations floral picks.
  • Floral sticks.

It Is Time to Start Your Natural DIY Project

  • Scour the woods for the attractive fir brush you will need to clip down to wreath size pieces; you will need to use approximately 25 large branches to complete a 14” Christmas wreath.
  • Fasten the floral wire to the metal ring.
  • Now you need to make a small bunch of brush about 3 to 4 pieces. Be sure to start with a large piece in the back, and then layer on smaller pieces.
  • Twist the wire around the cut ends of the brush to secure it to the ring.
  • Now, make another bunch of brush; then lay the second bunch on top of the first, slightly lower.
  • Take the wire and wrap the wreath 2 or 3 times around it, then pull the wire spool tightly towards you to fasten it. Make sure to repeat this step a few times more, add bunch by bunch until you scope back where you began the wreath.
  • Next, lift up the ends of the first bunch of brush you started with, then poke the final bunch un under the tips, and to secure the entire piece wrap it with wire.
  • Your wreath is almost ready, what you need to do to complete it is to make a loop with the wire, this way you will have an easy hanging, after that twist loose en around the wire frame.
  • Ok your wreath is complete, now grab some pruners to snip back any pieces on brush that seem to be too long or out of place.
  • The last and funniest step is to decorate your natural Christmas wreath the way you want. In case you will place it on a table, then I would like to suggest scent candles you can light up to provide your spaces with a warmer feel during Christmas evenings.

In my opinion, wreaths are the perfect complement to start these holidays; they are so versatile that you can strive to make them to suit almost any space of your home. Moreover, the charming side of creating your own natural wreaths is that you will enjoy of a fresh arrangement that lasts in the cold weather; this is just one of the many alternatives you can create, but you can always experiment with all kinds of materials that lead you to create the wreath arrangement that best fit your entire decor.

In the U.S. 28,000miles of ribbon are used for Christmas decorating purposes, all those miles of ribbon will be enough to tie a bow around planet Earth; if only every family reuse two feet of this DIY material, they will be recycling and upcycling a significant quantity of waste that cost you more money every year. I honestly believe that giving Christmas DIY projects a try would be an entertaining and delightful way of spending good quality time; whether you opt for natural wreaths, Mason jar crafts or driftwood trees, these decorations will make the best of your spaces this year, and the best part is that you will need simple materials that you probably have already at home. Think beyond traditional Christmas decor you can find in your local home store, and create extraordinary decorating items from ordinary materials…you dream it, we Build it!

Nowadays, with all the mass consumption, Americans spend ridiculous amounts of money on electrical appliances, manufactured air purifiers, candles and any other item that can suppress strong odors. What FinishBuild loves about this particular indoor plant is that you can apply a more suitable strategy with them by placing them inside your home in order to purify the air instead of replace it with a stronger odor.

Dracaena plant is tolerant of most indoor lighting conditions: Since it can tolerate a wide variety of indoor light conditions it makes it ideal for a moderate natural light or beneficial artificial lighting. In any of the cases, keep into account that moderate light will provide all what Dracaena plant needs to support itself. Since it is a slow-growing plant, this indoor plant will maintain its height and shape for some time. On the other hand in the case where there is strong light source, the Dracaena plant’s growth will speed up, however the probabilities of developing mealy bug are very high in bright light. Beyond these bug situation there are no restrictions that might stop you from having them completely exposed to sunlight.

Even though low light is the least desirable lighting choice, these plant is a really one in a million kind, some  Dracaena plants can easily survive in low light, but you will require to dramatically reduce the amount you water the plant. This not only would allow you to control the moisture level but also the indoor plant’s process of photosynthesis.

4 300x300 Garden Plants: Best Natural Air Filter

Watering is easy: Taking into account that Dracaena plant can be found from Sudan south to Mozambique, watering is fairly simple. If you Dracaena plant is placed in moderate light, it should be watered when the soil surface is dry to the touch. What we recommend in most of interior plant cases is to water them enough to moisten the soil throughout the pot. Therefore watered every week or two can work for your Dracaena in moderate light.

For strong light exposure, your Dracaena Plant may require more attention, either to leave some water in the liner or water more frequently, but the reward of attention would pay off with a faster growth process.

FinishBuild would like to remind you that Dracaena plant is not also a slow-growing but also a slow-reacting plant, subsequently it may take weeks for the plant to show symptoms of either overwatering or under-watering. And by then the damage will already have occurred, this is why we believe this information is highly valuable for these long-lasting natural air filters.

How Does a natural Air Filter Works?

According to LIVESCIENCE air-purification capacities of indoor plants are real. Some of the plants that scientists have found most useful in removing VOCs, which are known as volatile organic compounds, such as carbon dioxide, benzene and formaldehyde. Interior plants not only help Mother Nature but also humans in health issues for example asthma and nausea, as well as chronic diseases such as cancer and respiratory illnesses.

Indoor plant’s ability to remove these harmful compounds is called Phytoremediation, which is the process that uses various types of plants to remove, transfer, stabilize, and destroy contaminants in the soil and groundwater. There are several different types of phytoremediation mechanisms.

Dracaena plant is also responsible of removing toxins, no wonder why we can see them in malls, offices and closed areas. According to HOUSEPLANTEXPERT, this indoor plant was use in the NASA’s clean air study which proved to remove a considerable amount of toxins from the environment.

finishbuild types of bricks uses in interior design DESTACADA 300x138 FinishBuild: Types of bricks & Uses in Interior Design

It is inevitable for FinishBuild to start writing about bricks and not to recall the 1933 Disney adapted version of the three little pigs’ story. Besides being the best example of a loyal material, bricks are also increasing its popularity on the eco-friendly field. Brick is made of natural clay minerals, including kaolin and shale. On addition, small amounts of manganese, barium, and other additives are combined with the clay to produce different shades. Once they are mixed, each mixture is fired to around 2000F. Among the goodness that bricks own, there is also the fact that is not only a non-combustible material, but also has the plus of being high wind protection. Studies have found that homes made with brick exceed the 34 mph impact resistance requirement for high velocity hurricane zones in the Florida building code.

Brick also go above Florida’s impact resistance requirements for essential facilities in hurricane areas, which it is an interesting plus for such seasonally storm area. Brick also counts with a high superior moisture control, due to its covering finishes. Consequently, brick veneer wall systems help minimize mold growth, wood rot and infestation by insects.

When it comes to style, brick has always been the reflection of rustic and country style, as well as the humble households build in the late 19th century.  Nowadays, it is astonishing how exposed bricks can change the interiors of any room, whether is by giving it a country style or an industrial one. FinishBuild is glad to suggest places to add this material to boost your appearance.

Bricks on FinishBuild Wall: Types

Through history we might have seen a slight variation among the sizes of bricks, which basically not only depend of the geographical location but also the purpose of the product in demand.

A bigger brick, for instance it generally used for a thicker & isolated wall. Remember castles, for example? Historically speaking meant that bigger bricks were necessary in colder climates, while a smaller brick was adequate, and more economical, in warmer regions. Nowadays this is no longer an issue, for brick modern walls specific insulation materials are now extra added if it is required.

Flowing from architectural style, ranging from colonial to Victorian to post-modernist. It is one of the few materials that can actually look better with age. Brick also absorbs noise, giving it an acoustic advantage over other materials – especially helpful in densely populated areas.  According to Juan Rodriguez, in TheBalance, in the masonry field we can find five predominant types of bricks that are classified by manufactured composition.

Number  1 is: Common burnt clay bricks are formed by pressing in molds and subsequently dried and fired in a kiln. Burnt clay bricks are frequently used in general work to structure base and when these bricks are used for walls construction, they have need of plastering or rendering.

Number 2 is: Sand lime bricks which as its word suggests they are made by mixing sand, fly ash -which is known as pulverized fly ash- and lime followed by a chemical process during wet mixing. These types of bricks are called self-cementing. The mix is then molded under pressure forming the brick and offer an excellent strength as a load-bearing member. Color and shape are also smooth and uniform (in most of the cases).

Number  3 is: Engineering bricks, which are blocks manufactured at extremely high temperature, forming a dense and strong brick classified on 3 types. Even though all allow strength and water absorption, Engineering bricks are class A or B, however class B bricks are the cheapest engineering bricks. They are generally red in color, and less uniform than facing bricks. In addition in contrast with class A bricks that are 125N/mm² in strength, class B bricks owns a strength of 75N/mm² .

Number 4 is: Concrete bricks are made from solid concrete. Sand/lime or calcium silicate bricks are made with sand aggregate and 5% to 10% hydrated lime and are cured in an autoclave. Properties of these units are specified in ASTM C 73. They are available in severe weathering (SW) and moderate weathering (MW) grades, according to MASONRYCONSTRUCTION.Concrete bricks, on the other hand, are made with sand aggregate and cement materials. Concrete bricks are usually placed in frontages or fences, and even though they are not an extravagant appealing, it provide a classic urban presence.

Number 5 is: Fly ash clay bricks in contrast with common clay bricks are manufactured with fly ash and an addition of clay material, at about 1,000Cnevertheless, studies have shown that these bricks are not that durable as they seem due to the fact that they might produce pop-outs when come into contact with moisture and water, causing these bricks to expand.
